Nothing for Nothing

Businesses, law firms, and special interests all donate for a reason: influence. A WSJ piece clearly, and without any pulled punches, shows what these donations mean in areas of county governance that people like you and I never see. Give it a look-see.

Now about that Virgin-Mobile donation to County Exec Ulman...hmm.

  1. It's difficult to watch people vote for candidates who have taken large and out of town donations. But they do. Sales work, and media for the most part has been a very willing participant - at least up until now.

    But if people organize like the Tea Parties (rather than political parties) or the Inside Out campaign, we might be able to turn things around.
